Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan described Mr. K. Subrahmanyam as an outstanding citizen who made a difference to the country with his knowledge, passion, and perseverance. He was one of the few officials who shaped India’s nuclear doctrine and strategic vision whichever party happened to be in power and whoever happened to be Prime Minister. He succeeded even when he did not hold any formal office of authority because of his deep and fierce commitment to the country.

In a tribute to Mr. Subrahmanyam, who passed away yesterday, Dr. JP described him as a model civil servant, who went out of way in his call of duty. He was a man of rectitude, impartiality, and humility, who declined the nation’s second highest honor, ‘Padma Vibhushan’. He embodied all the best virtues in civil service and journalism.

India needs thousands of such nation-building Subrahmanyams, said Dr. JP.
